A document that has been made widely available on the ASHA website—http://capcsd.org/survey/1998/survey98.htm—is worth a look. The document describes the Survey of
Undergraduate and Graduate Programs in Communication Sciences and Disorders. The last published survey was in 1998–1999. In this document are some very interesting data. For example, with approximately 75% of graduate programs reporting, how many doctoral degrees, would you guess, have been granted in audiology since 1981? If you guessed 1,000 you are way off-the-mark. If you guessed 300 you are still a bit too high. In fact, according to this survey, 298 doctoral degrees have been granted by university programs in the past 18 years (for a profession of more than 12,000). That is an average of 16 or 17 doctoral degrees granted per year.
